2000 Pontiac Grand Prix Oil Change Service

How Often to Change 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Pontiac recommends having your 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Grand Prix may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Pontiac recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Pontiac Grand Prix. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Pontiac has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2000 Grand Prix. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Grand Prix’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Grand Prix by considering your driving style, and odometer.

2000 Pontiac Grand Prix Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Pontiac Grand Prix? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Pontiac Grand Prix engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Pontiac Grand Prix oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Pontiac Grand Prix exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
